* Ginny in ''FanFic/WaterAreobicsForTheAquaphobic'' is turned into a flying pig (courtesy of the Spring of the Drowned Pig and the Spring of the Drowned Homing Pigeon). At one point, Harry says something might happen 'when pigs fly', and immediately collides with Ginny in her cursed form.

** As of ''Backlash 2016,'' [[spoiler:he's WWE World Champion]]. Just to reiterate: the man who, once upon a time, was impossible to imagine competing in the Wrestling/RoyalRumble is now '''[[spoiler:one of the top guys in the company]]'''.

** In "Wish Fixers", Timmy must make no idiotic wish for five days. Cue "When Pigs Fly" poof. Cue pigs.

** The flavor text on the card [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=398499 Meteorite]] implies this trope.

** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when Cartman is not hit by lightning when he says he has never done anything just for the money, although Butters does moves out of the way.

When circumstances conspire to incite someone to exclaim that something would happen if and only if something everyone ''knows'' is impossible occurs -- "when [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Hell]] freezes over" (nevermind that according to ''TheDivineComedy'', the final level of Hell ''is'' frozen over) and/or "when pigs fly!" and/or "[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs when pigs fly over frozen hell!]]" -- you can bet that by the end of the episode we will see pigs soaring majestically over the landscape or {{Satan}} running ski slopes while sipping hot cocoa.

** That same night, Wrestling/RomanReigns, who many believe was ''never'' going to get over because of the terrible Cena-like booking he's had to endure for the last ten months, managed to get over. It turns out all he had to do was beat the crap out of Wrestling/TripleH. The next night, Philadelphia, who booed both him and ''[[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]'' out of the building eleven months before, happily cheered for him [[spoiler:and even marked out when he won the title that same night]]. So somehow, Reigns went from one of the biggest heat magnets in wrestling and the unintentional embodiment of everything the fans consider wrong with WWE, to being over enough to get the smarkiest crowd on the planet cheering for him in the span of twenty-four hours. Smarks are outright baffled over what happened, even if they are happy for him.

Smarks are outright baffled over what happened, even if they are happy for him. Unfortunately, it didn't last and he became TheScrappy again about a month later.
* Wrestling/RomanReigns was pretty much designated as the next Wrestling/JohnCena, despite the active resistance of the fans. That meant he would always win and only lose via shenanigans. It seemed nothing would change Wrestling/VinceMcMahon's mind about that. And then, not even three months after they finally gave him his moment at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania 32'' to the disgust of the majority of the fanbase, [[EpicFail he violated the Wellness Policy]]. That meant the company had to get the title off him ASAP before he went on a forced vacation. He subsequently lost clean to Wrestling/SethRollins for the title, and then Wrestling/DeanAmbrose, of whom many were convinced the company was ''never'' going to pull the trigger on, cashed in his newly won Wrestling/MoneyInTheBank contract to finally become WWE Champion. After setting up Wrestling/TheShield triple threat for ''Battleground'' the following night, Roman was suspended. When he came back, he ate another clean pin from Wrestling/DeanAmbrose for the triple threat, much to the shock of the fans. And yet, despite this unprecedented turn of events, the IWC was ''still'' convinced Roman would get back his push soon afterwards. It wasn't until Roman ate another clean pin, at the hands of Wrestling/FinnBalor no less, who had just debuted on the main roster, to make Finn the new #1 contender for the new WWE Universal Championship, did fans realize how deep in the doghouse Reigns was.

* Possible reference to this trope in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Toph's family crest is the Flying Boar, which is, well, a boar with wings. A vision of such a creature is part of what leads Aang to her, and it may be a reference to how unlikely it would seem for a 12-year-old blind girl to be such a master bender. More specifically, said minute, 12-year-old blind girl is a master Earthbender. [[DontExplaintheJoke The majority of Earthbenders are burly men.]]
